He Zhijian, a 62-year-old pensioner from China, held his grandson in his arms while waiting for police officers in the bustling departure lobby of Helsinki Airport on Wednesday. The officers were to return him his confiscated passport and ensure he boards an aircraft to leave the country. “The situation feels a bit embarrassing and unfair. I feel like a criminal, although I've done nothing wrong,” He laments.
